STENCILED DRESSER

Do It Yourself - - Before + After -

An all-over sten­cil gives this dresser a lit­tle shim­mer and a lot of style, this photo. Prep and paint dresser your de­sired base color. De­sign sten­cil pat­terns in the cut­ter’s de­sign plat­form (fifind (find our pattern at BHG .com/FreePat­terns). Mea­sure the draw­ers and sides of dresser to de­ter­mine sten­cil size for easy pattern re­peat. Ap­ply sten­cil ma­te­rial to stan­dard­grip cut­ting mat. Set cut­ting set­ting to thick trans­parency pa­per and cut. Sten­cil the pattern onto dresser by at­tach­ing with pain­ters tape and ap­ply­ing paint with a round sten­cil­ing brush. (We used Martha Ste­wart Pearl crafts paint on our project.)

DAB THE BRUSH ONTO PA­PER TOW­ELS TO RE­MOVE EX­CESS PAINT BE­FORE AP­PLY­ING TO STEN­CIL. IF THERE IS TOO MUCH PAINT ON THE BRUSH, PAINT WILL SEEP UN­DER THE STEN­CIL AND THE DE­SIGN EDGESWILL BLEED.
